We have a ALR Revolution QSMP server with 4 166Mhz P5 chips that runs
SCO Openserver 5.0.0. When we originally installed this system, we
loaded net100 and rs500d. Later when oss449 first 'hit the shelves' I
installed oss449A on the system. The other day, the system paniced
with a could not freeze processor 2 messages. Reviewing the SCO web
site, I decided I'd better remove the oss449A patch and apply the
latest oss449F patch. I did and now I've seen three 'ip:spinning'
messages in 5 days. The details are:
CPUx: WARNING: ip:spinning on PCB F02D4C80
CPUx: ip_spinreport 5000000
CPUx: spinning at in_pcb.c+136
CPUx: inp_hold at tcp_timer.c+99
CPUx: inp_refcnt 1
CPUx: inp_qref 0
Then, after applying patch oss449F, I ran 'inconfig ip_spinreport
5000000' as root to try to prevent the 'ip:spinning on queue' panic
that was reported with oss449F.
The error has occurred on CPU3, CPU4 and CPU2. Each time, all the
information, except the CPU is the same.
